Affected Services

Hydro, gas, telephone and cable TV services should not be affected by the construction, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

There may be a minor distribution to sanitary servicing while the existing service is connected to the new service at property line.

Water service may be interrupted for just a short duration in order to switch the water service over from the old watermain system to the new watermain system. Notice of timing of any planned water interruption will be provided in advance of such occurrence.

Curbside collection will not be affected. On your normal curbside collection day, area residents are asked to place all garbage, organics, recyclables and yard waste materials at the front of the property as usual. The construction contractor will remove these items and take them to outside of the construction zone for pickup by the City’s waste contractor. Garbage cans, organic bins and recycling boxes will be returned to the property later that day. Please mark your address on all of your containers.

Access to Properties

Vehicle access to properties within the construction limits will be provided at almost all times throughout the construction period, however on various occasions direct access to driveways may be restricted.  Access to driveways will be restored as quickly as possible after the work causing the restriction is completed.

Pedestrian access to properties will be maintained throughout the duration of the construction

Access for emergency service vehicles will be maintained at all times.

Schedule

Expected Start: September 2018
Expected Completion: November 2018 with top asphalt expected in summer of 2019

Safety 

The contractor is required to conduct his work in a safe manner, including fencing of deep excavations, etc.  We ask that you take extra caution during the construction period to ensure everyone’s safety.
